This is getting really cool. One suggestion: the example on the home 
page needs a libgmail in front of the GmailAccount constructor

I couldn't work out how to get the gmail.js required to update the 
constants.py. Maybe being able to give username and password to 
mkconstants to let it fetch the javascript would be a good idea?
